 I love listening to praise and worship song/music. It brings joy in my heart and relaxes my mind. Music has a special power to move and stir our emotions. There are times I get so affected by the song and it’s causing tears to flow in my eyes. Scientific studies have shown that music has a profound effect on our body and various parts of the brain. In fact, there’s a growing field of health care known as music therapy, which uses music to heal. Music therapy is used to help with pain management, to help ward off depression, to ease muscle tension, to promote movement, to calm children with ADD, to help cancer patients.

People, who are music lovers, not just listen to songs or music but play musical instruments as well. They express their emotions or feelings through the music they play. Some of them can play not just one but different musical instrument like piano, organ, flute, violin, drums and guitar. Speaking of musical instrument, I just happen to remember my friend’s recommendation. He said to choose fat-cat musical instrument in case I have a plan to buy. How about you do you have any brand to recommend? Feel free to leave your suggestions.

What is scarsdale diet? How is it different from other diet plan? The Scarsdale Diet plan is a two week low fat/low carbohydrate and high protein diet. The diet plan includes low carbohydrate and low fat food items while it includes high protein items. It does not completely cut out the carbohydrates though, it includes some bread and fruits as well to provide the carbohydrates to the body.

The basic Scarsdale diet is to be followed for either seven to 14 days, alternating with two weeks off. The dieter is instructed to drink at least 4 glasses of water, tea, or diet soda every day in order to flush waste products from the body.

The Scarsdale Diet have no special dietary needs or problems and clearly outlines the type of foods to be eaten each day. An adult woman who follows the diet exactly will consume between 650 and 1000 calories per day. The nutrient ratio, which is unusual for a low-carbohydrate diet, is 43% protein, 22.5% fat, and 34.5% carbohydrate.

Scarsdale diet is a balanced diet which does not exclude any food group completely. This is one of its strongest advantages since that is a highly important aspect of any diet plan. Any diet plan that excludes carbohydrates or fat from a person’s diet completely is unhealthy since the body needs its carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins as well as minerals. The Scarsdale diet simply reduces the sizes of portions and the choice of carbohydrates from the usual diet which helps the body in losing weight in a comfortable, yet healthy manner.

The good thing about the diet is that it promises to keep weight down for the whole life instead of only helping a person lose excess weight temporarily. Once the weight loss is achieved, the diet program includes a lifetime ‘Keep-slim’ program.
